The visit to the physiologist went very well and I actually heard the words, "she may not have to wear the brace long term". I just about fell out of my chair! That was the first glimmer of hope in this area and I could have FLOWN home I was so excited. But one thing I've learned is that you should NEVER count your chickens before they are hatched. With that said, Dr. Morozova recommended switching from the Cascade 3.5 DAFO (Dynamic Ankle Foot Orthosis) to an SMO (Supra-Malleolar Orthosis). Unfortunately the orthotist and PT don't agree with the SMO direction and I'm stuck in the middle. The good news is that we have a team of people who are giving us options. We met with the orthotist and he cast Reagan for a new brace and will be calling Dr. Morozova to make a final decision on what brace to order. It should arrive in about 6-8 weeks. Reagan decided to switch from green with horses to purple with jaguars. Can't wait to see it!
In addition to some beach time, Reagan went to a Disney Frozen ballet camp with her friend Emma, went to the Leesburg 4th of July Parade and we've made some time to get the ATVs and dirt bike out!
